Lascek now has eight goals and six assists in six games and should easily surpass the 18 goals he scored last year. Since being shutout in his first game this season, Lascek has scored at least one goal and two points in his last five games. Against Gatineau, Lascek was plus-one and had two penalty minutes. His goal was score shorthanded, his league-leading third shorthanded marker of the year.
